I renewed my driver's license! What's the big deal??

The day I last renewed was soon after DD. My husband needed renewed that year too. My H was staying at his parents and didn't have the money or a ride, so I picked him up and we renewed at same time. Was early for me, but did it anyways...

How awful that we had snapshots of that time- him: busted; me: shocked, weary, not sleeping or eating... And that we both had to carry them with us as vivid reminder of that time these past years! At least it's been that way for me.... That look on my face, in my eyes..

It also had another significance. When we were done, I dropped him off but went inside with him. It was first day/time we really talked much to each other. In fact one thing led to another.. and actually slept together for first time post DD. So I've had that date always printed on my license reminding me...

As I drove away today from the bureau, I felt the need to turn around and get that old license to keep...what was that date again?? But then thought:

Why? Let it go... Move on... Go forward... It's a new phase of this life I'm being forced to live. Just a little change- but sure impressed heavy on my heart today.
